Lance Schmale is a versatile, visionary artist who goes under pseudonym
of sylance. His work is an eclectic mix of different styles and
techniques, inspired by cultures around the world. They always have a
warm, organic and handpainted feel to them, which reflects joy and
peace. During his creative process, the music he listens to elevates him
to a place where his mind is silent. Through a strong focus, there he
feels the freedom to channel psychedelic art into his illustrations, to
share with the world.
Through his journey as an artist as a child he once sold one of his
little works for 100 guilders on an art market, and bought a Furby of
these first earnings.
Growing up in an artist family, he was surrounded by mysterious
paintings of angels and goddesses, symbols and signs. As an academic he
started out as a game artist, but grew to become skilled in a wide
variety of techniques. Since he has applied these to make concept art
for character design, lancescapes and animation. His psychedelic and
worldly style still resonates through both his work in multidisciplinary
projects, on commission and on his own accord.
